Add Color To Your Table Setting

By Karin Brosnan - Thursday, January 22, 2009

Start off with a simple placesetting: I used a cute beachy plastic dessert/salad plate (from Big Lots 4 for $4.99) stacked on top of a square white plate placed on an angle and then stacked on top of a large yellow plate used as a charger plate. It's o.k..... but it is just not popping for me so on to the next photo so you can see what I continue to add to make this really look great.I have added a punch of color by using a plastic hot pink goblet with a little paper umbrella in it and we have taken the plain white napkin and put a silk flower around it for a napkin ring. I cut the flower off the long stem but left about 5 or 6 inches so I could bend it into a circle to wrap around the napkin.More color!! I found some amazing blue tissue paper laying around the house and I decided to make a table runner from it!! I also set the other placesetting across from it and used an orange colored plastic goblet for fun. Just by adding a few simple colorful accessories, the table top now pops and it looks like a celebration is just about to happen. Have fun, be creative, try new things to make your dinner table come alive.

  3. Fun! I love getting to play around like that...maybe if I reduced computer time, I could get creative with some fun table settings for my family to enjoy...except I think my 2 year old would have it all over the floor before anyone else got to the table! :)

  4. Love this.
    Perhaps if I didn't live with one large man child & 3 boys who would eat with their feet if I let them, this would be perfect for some summer nights.
    Sigh.
    One day I will have pretty tables. :>)
